More than 122 million Returns e-Filed in 2013

 

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced a milestone for IRS e-file – more than 122 million returns were e-filed during 2013. The statistics provided today contain complete e-file totals for 2013.

 

This year, the IRS received more than 45.2 million returns from those who prepared and e-filed their own returns on home computers, up from 43.2 million a year earlier, an increase of 4.6 percent. E-filed returns from tax professionals increased slightly, totaling more than 77 million returns. Whether they are self prepared or prepared by a tax return preparer, 91 percent of all tax returns filed by individuals are prepared on computers using tax preparation software, which improves the accuracy of those returns.

 

Other highlights from the new filing season statistics show:

 

  • During 2013, the IRS issued more than 109 million refunds worth almost $300 billion.
  • Almost 77 percent of refund recipients chose to receive their refunds through direct deposit.
  • More people are using IRS.gov to get answers, file their returns and resolve issues. So far in 2013, the IRS web site has been accessed more than 430 million times, up almost 24 percent compared to the same time last year.

I wonder how much of this is Health Care related and what is going to happen when the fines are levied.

Ditto, Charles. Looks like the CPA's and tax pros got the lions share of the business.
